Riff: Kesha – “C’mon”

Jan 4, 2013

Hot cause the party don’t stop/I’m in a crop top/Like I’m working at Hooters

from C'mon lyrics by Kesha

Just when you think it couldn’t get any worse, Ke$hareleases “C’mon,” a poorly crafted, bubblegum hit destined to soundtrack malls nationwide. It’s not only the writing either. Her flimsy vocals are anemic, and she tries to hide it with an awkward, lady-rap routine. All of it done in poor taste.
